With only two matches remaining in the regular season, Bentonville girls golf coach Lindsey Davis is thrilled to see what her players have accomplished.
The Lady Tigers continued their winning ways Tuesday with a victory over Rogers Heritage. Bentonville has been unbeaten so far this season, with the closest margin of victory being a two-stroke win (116-118) over Rogers High on Aug. 31.

The Arkansas Activities Association released its football conference alignments this summer, then it announced the new conference alignments for other sports last week as a result of Proposal No. 9 being passed.
